Room redo…

My darling and I have been in our farmhouse for almost 5 years (and three kids later!) and I am SLOWLY trying to make it ours. This is easier said than done…

Money (maternity leave is not that fabulous!), learning to work with the house’s quirks and trying to decide on what my style is, has slowed the process. And I’ve read a few places that you are supposed to actually live in a home for a while to see how you use it in order to decorate it…

So far we’ve done the baby’s room…

The kid’s rooms are starting to come together (I’ll post some pictures when I am done!).

The porch/entry way…

The upstairs bathroom…

And I’ve slapped a coat of paint on our tv room and kitchen…

Now, I’m working on our bedroom…and boy is it going slow! Mostly because I can’t make up my mind!!! (and trying to do anything with 3 little kids around is like trying to herd cats…)

But if I had the budget and a fabulous contractor and designer at my disposal, I think I would try to do something like these gorgeous rooms!

Some fun ideas!

If you are anything like me, your days have been filled with…

“I’m bored.”

“I wan go ow-side.”

*scream* “That’s mine” *smack* “Mommy!!!”

That’s right.

Bored kids, trapped inside because of snow and wind and ugly temperatures…

But through my (LOVE) pinterest, there is something you can do, don’t panic, pour a (TINY) bit more Baileys in your coffee and try some of these ideas!

Reader request…Liz!

Lucky girl Liz is heading off on a cruise in a few weeks to the Eastern Caribbean!

I can only dream…

Anyways…

She is planning on lounging most of the time but need ideas for dinners and port visits. (Sounds like my kind of vacation!!) Since I am a CHRONIC overpacker, I tried to reuse as many items as I could and create some different looks. Here you go Liz! Hope this helps you and have a TON of fun!!!

p.s. if any of you darling readers have ever sent me a request and I haven’t responded, I think I might have lost them…I know I have read some and can’t find them anywhere, and through comments, facebook, twitter and emails I get a little lost sometime!! So if I missed you, I’m sorry, and emailing me your requests is the best way; that way I can save the requests and nothing gets lost!! Thanks dolls!
